Synopsis

This British/Polish TV co-production, "presented by Lord Grade," traced the life of Karol Wojtyla from his boyhood in Poland to the Vatican, although the nominal stars are New Zealand actor Sam Neill and English actor Christopher Cazenove as two of his friends from the early years. Wojtyla is portrayed by Polish actor Cezery Morawski, who is unknown in the United States. More than two years later, another film about Pope John Paul II would mark Albert Finney's American TV acting debut.
